4 Celebrity Looks from the People’s Choice Awards — How to Get Them

The glamor didn’t fail to impress at the 2014 People’s Choice Awards this past Wednesday, January 8th. The celebrities were absolutely stunning in their couture gowns and freshly-painted faces. In honor of gorgeous women everywhere, I’ve put together my four favorite looks from the awards. We may not be able to get our hair and makeup done by professionals, but we can certainly learn a few tricks of the trade and look just as beautiful.

    Skin: You'll want to start by concealing any blemishes and applying your foundation. Next, throw some depth back into your skin by highlighting under the eyes, bridge of the nose, chin, and forehead and contour directly under the cheek bones and around the outer edges of the forehead. To get that beautiful glow, you're going to need the best illuminator out there -- NARS illuminator in Orgasm. This is really going to make those cheekbones shimmer. Follow with with your Nars blush and bronzer; the blush goes right on the apple of the cheeks with a long swipe up to the ear, then put the golden bronzer anywhere the sun might touch.


    Eyes: Using the Stila in the know palette, sweep the charcoal color over the eyelids, define the crease with the ebony and highlight the eyebrow bone with the cream.  Then add in some of that gorgeous orange to just really pull in and accentuate that bronzy color.


    Finishing touch: To finish off the look you'll want the perfect lipstick.  It needs to be a color that brightens the natural lip color but that doesn't take away from the overall softness of the look.  The dried rose Yves Saint Laurent is perfect for achieving this.


    1) Nars Blush/Bronzer in sin/casino | $41

    2) NARS Illuminator, Orgasm | $30

    3) stila In the Know Eye Shadow Palette | $39

    4) Yves Saint Laurent Lipstick in dried rose pink | $34

  • Get the Contrast Queen Look 4 of 7

    Skin: Kat has this amazing fair skin. It's so smooth and completely free of pores. To get this beautiful coverage, it's important to use the right products. I recommend the Makeup Forever HD primer, foundation and microfinish powder.  There's not a ton of highlighting and contouring going on, but she does have a tiny bit of blush on the apples of her cheeks.


    Lips: Kat rocks the perfect bold lip! This is one of my favorite colors. Make sure to use a liner as you don't want the color from the lipstick to bleed outside the lip


    Finishing touches: Create a dark brow and a center part with soft curls. You'll take your head wrap and place it on the occipital bone so it sits further back.  

    1) Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade | $18

    2) Makeup Forever Microperfecting Primer | $34

    3) Makeup forever HD Invisible Cover Foundation

    4) Makeup Forever Microfinish Powder | $34

    5) Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick- Deep Fuchsia | $22

    6) Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes | $29

    7) Headwrap | $3

    Hair: Blow dry the hair, directing the bangs back. Then wrap one inch sections of hair around a 25mm curling wand, away from the face. Next, use some texture spray and shake the hair out.  Section the hair from ear to ear and pin it up and out of the way. Then take the hair from the nape of the neck and twist it up into a loose, messy chignon. Section off hair at the temples and pin up the top section. Then wrap the left section around the chignon and repeat on the right side. Finally, take the top portion, loosely pull it back and wrap it around the chignon as well. You're basically creating a chignon stacking bun!


    Makeup: Using the Too Faced palette, sweep "Heaven" from lashes to brow and blend "Velvet Revolver" into crease. Then line the upper and lower lash lines with "Sexpresso" and blend.  Finish off with some soft cheeks and lips!

    1) Jose Eber Curling Iron, Black, 25mm | $50

    2) Too Faced Tinted Beauty Balm- Vanilla Glow | $34

    3) Oribe Dry Texturing Hair Spray, 8.5 Ounce | $42

    4) Josie Maran Argan Color Stick Pink | $34

    5) Too Faced Cosmetics, Natural Eye | $34

  • Nina Dobrev, The Knot Hawk: Get the Look 7 of 7

    I absolutely loved  Nina's look. She's just stunning. Period. Her hair was so chic and fairly simple to achieve. You're going to first start with some great texture.  Go ahead and curl the hair and then spray all over with some sea salt spray. I recommend the KMS Hair Play Sea Salt Spray | $15.  



    1) Starting at the nape of your neck, make four mini ponytails up the center of the head. The last ponytail should hit around the crown of the head and the top of the hair, left loose. The ponytails should be around two inches apart.

    2) Starting with the bottom ponytail, start knotting.  Knot after knot until you reach the end of your hair and then wrap the ends around the knot and pin

    3) Repeat for the other three knots. As you go up, the knots will get bigger and bigger as you are working with more hair

    4) Loosely pull back that top section of hair towards the knotted section and twist and pin in place.  Make sure you aren't pulling too tightly as you want a lot of volume and height.

    Finish off the style by using Kenra Volume Spray | $15
